911 Restoration Durham Region
Meet the Owner:
“Everyday brings something different” is what Mike Porco, owner of 911 Restoration Durham Region loves most about the restoration industry.
Mike opened his own water mitigation company after years as an office worker. “The repetitive lifestyle was taking a toll on me,” he says. “I wanted to do something that I love and that helps people.”
To be there for people during their time of need, when they are frustrated or panicking, when they do not know what to do or whom to call, this is the focal point in Mike’s training of his technicians.
“We are a small business. But we are proud of our service quality, boutique style, and customer-oriented business model.” Mike says.
Mike takes pride in getting to know the homeowners who called because he believes that every customer is unique, and so are their needs and concerns.
“I listen carefully to their every word because I don’t want to miss anything.” This method can back fire however, because “sometimes I focus too much that I forget I’m not smiling!” Mike laughs.

Tips to Prevent Water Damage Invasion
The best way to clean up water damage is to prevent them from happening. In Canada where the winter is long and harsh, Mike recommends homeowners to keep a regular maintenance schedule for household appliances and infrastructure.
Here are a few of his suggestions:
- Clean out your gutters thoroughly twice a year, especially before winter and afterward. Position the downspouts away from your siding with a five foot clearance.
- Locate and note the location of the main water shut-off valve. In case of an emergency you can shut it off immediately.
- Record maintenance schedule and purchase date of appliances like the washing machine or the water heater. It’d make your life easier when it comes to insurance.
- Don’t forget to check on your septic tank!
Mike believes that the quality of his work speaks for itself. He has responded to many urgent calls: one came from a renter who could not get a hold of their property manager or the plumber they were supposed to contact. Their water tank had given out, resulting in two floors of water damage.
Without even knowing whether or not he had a contract, Mike came on site and started the remediation process immediately to help the tenants. The property manager was so impressed by his work and his willingness to help that he made Mike and his team his regular water damage experts!
